It’s a way to look instantly glamourous, and after several (failed) attempts of trying to get my bun to look like the ones up there I’ve discovered there’s a secret.

Those buns have a bit of extra help – hence the name ‘sock bun’.

You can try this look with an old scrunchie, try making your own with a sock here or get your hands on one from Pretty Buns for only $15.

Once you get the knack of it, it’s an easy hairstyle to have up your sleeve.

To help make it a bit easier, we’ve got this video tutorial from the sock-bun experts at Pretty Buns.

And hang around, as a little birdie told me we may just have some to give away very soon!

So, do you love this look? Have you already mastered it? And if not, will you be trying it?
